Finally getting around to playing this due to a severe lack of gaming time recently.


Absolutely loving it, it's totally breathed new life into the formula post Yak6 (yet to play LAD either) which was nice but a little by-the-numbers. I think my first post in this thread was hoping it would end up like Yakuza x Phoenix Wright and that's pretty much exactly what it is. The side case structure is a nice change from the normal substories and side activities (as great as they are) and using different locations around Kamurocho makes it feel like a new city; I'm in chapter 2 and no-one has mentioned New Serena once! Can't wait to get back to it, might even go back to back with the sequel to make up for lost time.

Finished. Man, what a game! Yeah, the usual RGG 'eww' moments are present and correct but what an incredible story. Actual real-world, grown up shit. 


Yakuza members are still intertwined obviously but not one of them does the 'whipping jacket and shirt off in one to reveal a gaudy animal tattoo' move (I was actually a bit disappointed about that) and the friend missions makes it feel a bit more like a functioning city which Yagami is a part of, rather than a cardboard diorama orbiting Kiryu's massive upper body (as much as I love him). Real top tier RGG stuff. 


Also 'YYYAGAMIIIII!' is just as fun coming out of a fat bad guy's mouth as 'KIRYYYYYUU!'. Another plus point.

So I decided to play Lost Judgement first, and I am absolute loving it. For those that have played the pair, would going back to the first feel like a step down, and are the stories separate enough?




1st one is just as good if not better, think I actually preferred it. Technology wise, pretty much the same as well, it won't seem dated at all.

First ones story was better. 

Second had lots more other things to do.


It's a close call tbh.  Just an odd way to do it imo. 


Odd indeed! I just thought one Yakuza will be enough until LAD2 but enjoying this one alot so will probably go back and play the first too.
